Ravens to Host Guernsey FC

Guernsey FC will visit the island this summer to play FC Isle of Man as they contest the Skipton Cup.

The teams will play each other again at The Bowl on Saturday July 23 at 6.30pm.

The first meeting between the sides in 2020 was the Raven’s ever game, which they won 1-0. This was followed by a 1-1 draw in Guernsey, with the Green Lions winning 5-4 on penalties. The pandemic prevented the 2021 tie from taking place.

FC Isle of Man Football Club Chair, Gill Christian, said: ‘It is really exciting for the club to compete again against the Green Lions at The Bowl and it promises to be an exciting game for both sets of fans. FC Isle of Man, Guernsey FC and Skipton International are all organisations which build strategically and plan for the future. The Skipton Cup is an integral part of both clubs’ pre-season preparations for the years to come.’

GFC Director Nic Legg added: ‘The friendships we made in the Isle of Man the first time we played were genuine and we are very excited about travelling to the Bowl for the Skipton Cup. This Cup is something we will all be able to look back on fondly in years to come as an oasis of sporting joy that started amid challenging times.’

Skipton International has a three-year agreement to sponsor the matches.

Ticket sales will be announced in due course.
